Inyeug Island

Also known as the Mystery island

A tiny island, located south of the larger, Aneityum island. These island belong to the southernmost Vanuatu islands group. Inyeug island has gained popularity for a couple of reasons.

Vanuatu Mystery Island

Inyeug island is known as the Mystery island. There is a small airport on the island (grass airstrip), which gets small plane flights from Port Vila via Tanna island twice a week, on Tuesday and Saturday. These flights are run by Air Vanuatu Domestic airline, Vanair services, as the Mystery island flights.

This small airfield is also known as Anatom or Aneityum Airport, because it mostly serves Inyeug's larger neighbouring, Anatom island.

The Mystery Island is also reached from the cruise ships that periodically anchor between Inyeug and the mainland, with several hundred tourists. Inyeug island and its small airport serve as access points to the larger Aneityum island.

If you enjoy a peaceful deserted island feel, Inyeug island will be a perfect getaway for you.

Mystery Island Guesthouse

The only hotel accommodation for Aneityum Island guests is at the Mystery Island Guesthouse. However, you will have to bring your own food from Port Vila or Tanna, as food cannot be readily purchased here and there are no meals provided. Fresh water must also be brought from Aneityum, so you must be well-provisioned before arriving for your stay. But, the island provides you with a peaceful deserted island feel and is located in a pristine setting. It's the perfect place to truly "get away."

The accommodations here are very simple and include a thatched guesthouse with two rooms and a very basic kitchen. The bathroom is outdoors and is a simple palm frond cubical with a bush toilet. It may not seem like the ideal accommodations, but you won't be bothered during your stay. The locals live on the mainland several miles away (they may visit during the day) and during the late afternoon, the island is all yours. There are no telephones, power, restaurants or shops here. Activities here amount to just about whatever you can come up with on your own.

It's recommended that you bring your own first aid kit, just in case. You may need this is you get sunburn, insect bites, or coral cuts. Better be safe than sorry.
